153: Multimedia Mythmaking (with Carmen Maria Machado)
We’re joined by author and fabulist (our new favorite word) Carmen Maria Machado as we delve into the stories and urban legends that inspire her, how video games and relaxing TV are more in depth than we’d imagined, and her favorite biblical insult.   This week, Julia recommends “Sisters of the Vast Black” by Lina Rather.

151: Myth Movie Night - Hocus Pocus
For Julia, nothing says Halloween quite like Hocus Pocus. For Amanda... she’s never seen it. Shocker.
